Intralinks at the AIternative Investments Symposium

Sometimes even the latest technology can’t outdo some good, old fashioned mixing of business with pleasure — an approach we took for our recent Alternative Investments Symposium held in New York for a small group of key clients and players in the industry.

Sometimes even the latest technology can’t outdo some good, old fashioned mixing of business with pleasure — an approach we took for our recent Alternative Investments Symposium held in New York for a small group of key clients and players in the industry.

We kicked off the symposium with a dynamic welcome event at STK, an upscale restaurant in downtown Manhattan. Over dinner and drinks, a mixture of private equity firms and hedge funds mingled with Intralinks staff and executives including Chief Marketing Officer Greg Kenepp and SVP North American Sales Mark Williams. The dinner was the ideal setting for everyone to get to know each other better before the more serious part of the event began the next morning.

While we wanted to share the Intralinks story, we didn’t want the symposium to be a one way conversation, so we integrated brainstorming and idea exchange sessions into the program. In addition to our key senior executives discussing how our SaaS solutions are used by AI firms globally, and how our technology allows both investors and fund managers to create greater efficiencies, we also wanted to hear what the attendees were thinking.

Well, we uncovered a wealth of information! Without revealing too much, once we opened up the conversation, tremendous ideas about how to help companies accelerate productivity at an even greater rate came pouring out.

From the personal relationships that were forged the previous evening to the opportunity to step out of the normal day-to-day routine and spend quality time with key members of the alternative investments community, we came away with unique and valuable ideas. I want to give a big thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to attend the event.

Next up? Similar events in Boston later this year and in New York during the first half of 2011!
